Thoughts On Insecurity by Cindymax8(f): 9:47am On Jan 16, 2022
The rate of Insecurity in this country is getting too much. The earlier the government takes drastic action, the better for Nigerians. I have always been an advocate of "An eye for an eye" as the best punishment for criminals.
The earlier we start treating criminals the same way they treat us, the better for us. We should stop pitying them. Nigerians are too emotional. They allow their emotions to cloud their judgement.
Why will someone pity a criminal caught in the act?
Some people don't understand that these criminals you are pitying are very heartless; if tables were turned, they won't pity you. They won't even think twice before hurting you.
The earlier we start "Eye for an Eye" the better it is for the society.
Yes, let criminals also feel the same way their victims felt.
No criminal should be pitied.
Why do you think the crime rate is low in some countries like Dubai and Saudi Arabia, it's because most criminals face the consequences of their actions immediately.
They don't keep criminals behind bars for many years only to release them into society to continue from where they stopped.
Society was much safer in the 80s when criminals were shot publicly, it served in as a lesson to intending criminals.
When you show people what the consequences of their actions will be, they will have a rethink before committing any crime, but when they realise that nothing will happen, they will get bolder and become more heartless.
We truly need a big miracle in this country.

It will only get better if we give the ultimate penalty to armed robbers, kidnappers, terrorists and ritualists and we give thorough media coverage on their executions; public execution if possible. Then half of those who are into it will think twice about the consequences of their crimes and do something else.
The reason why you will go to Saudi Arabia and not commit adultery or carry drugs is not because of your conscience; It is because of the strength of their legal system. One fuckup and you could spend your life In jail or beheaded.
The bitter truth is that criminals multiply because we tolerate them and even give excuses for them.

The people in power and those they care about are not the ones suffering from the insecurities. In fact some of them have their own personal gains in it, that's why I don't bother taking any drastic measures, so there may even be worse but due to their influence their ways are more coded
